I have a question concerning Adobe Creative Suite 1 vs. Adobe Creative Suite 2.

At work, we use ACS1, but plan on upgrading to 2 sometime next year. My question is: If I buy and install ACS2, we I be able to move files back and forth without any problems? Or, will I have to save as an older version when I use ACS2?

Any help is appreciated.

What kind of files?

CS1 was really fussy with older file versions of InDesign and Illustrator.

I do not believe this is a problem ala CS vs. CS2, however.

I've transferred files from Photoshop CS1 to CS2 and back with no problems.

You may and probably will have problems if you are using the new features of CS2.

I use Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator primarily.

Well here's what I've had to deal with...

I have CS at home and CS 2 at our University lab.

Photoshop is fine, Illustrator - I've had issues with everything being converted to paths. However, CS2 does give you an option to save as a CS1 .ai file if you'd like. InDesign - the files don't transfer. Adobe has some sort of "fix" for the InDesign thing on their website. It's pretty easy to find. But I think it requires that you save all of your .indd files as Interchange files (.inx) or something like that.

So yeah. I see CS2 as more of a pain in the ass than anything else. It probably wouldn't be so bad if I weren't switching between the versions so often. But whatever. Just my $.02
